Peterson Farms Seed hosts Farm Follies Foto Contest

One week remains for growers to submit photos to Peterson Farms Seed's "Farm Follies" Foto Contest.

"We are very serious about agronomics, the seed business, the product we put out and taking care of our customers. But we think that business and farming should have an element of fun as well," said Carl Peterson. "Like a lot of things in life, farming mishaps might not be funny at the time, but in retrospect we can draw amusement from them."

Submit your best photo of on-farm follies, bloopers, or mishaps and you could walk away with a Scheels gift card. Visit before Nov. 1, to submit your photos. Return between Nov. 2 and Thanksgiving to vote for your favorite. The winner will be announced at the Northern Ag Expo in December.

To enter: Include your name, town, and a brief description (50 words or less) and submit your entries at Entries must be received by Nov. 1. Voting will take place at Nov 2-24. Grand prize will be a $300 Scheels gift card; second and third prizes will be $100 Scheels gift card.

All submitted photos will become the property of Peterson Farms Seed and may be used for future marketing purposes.
